An Awesome Tradition

I have a handmade cross-stich quilt for each girl. My husband's family has apparently been doing this for quite some time now, and I LOVE the tradition! Members of the family, mom and dad's side, cross stitch a square, then it is sewn into a quilt. Here are the girls'!

This is just part of it, hers is double what is showing here.

Big Sis is just fake sleeping :) "Look Mommy, picture me asleep!"

In all seriousness, what an amazing memory! We now have Matt's from when he was a baby!! I have done a square for one other baby in the family so far also, and though it took me 876 years to complete it, I was happy to do it :)
